This event has ended.

Ishbel Myerscough - Up Close is an exhibition of meticulously observed paintings of friends and family, self-portraits, and domestic still life arrangements.

Myerscough is known for her precisely rendered and frank portrayal of her subjects, which over the past three decades have included herself, her close friend and fellow artist Chantal Joffe, and their families. Curator Sarah Howgate has described Myerscough’s paintings as demonstrating a “clear, forensic vision”, capturing her own reflection in the mirror with unflinching honesty. Within her painstaking attention to detail, Myerscough sees, as she puts it, “the wider things reflected in even the smallest life you lead”.
